Shouts of “Allahu akbar” directed at Czech synagogue

Security guards outside the Spanish Synagogue in Prague reported that during their Friday night service on 4th March, a black Volkswagen car drove close to the synagogue’s entrance and the passengers shouted “Allahu Akbar” towards them.

The car departed but returned a few minutes later and the passengers again shouted “Allahu Akbar”, which means “God is great” in Arabic. By now a police patrol was present at the entrance but it is not clear whether the offenders were spoken to by police.
